My family and I came here for dinner and drinks during a recent trip to Daytona Beach. Having been thoroughly impressed by McK's Tavern and Bottle Caps, I was excited to visit the city's only brewpub.

First of all, this enormous restaurant looks very attractive from the outside, and the interior decor is even more beautiful. Lots of dim lights, bright and colourful posters, and a gargantuan, well-lit bar give the place a modern and welcoming ambience. The inside was jammed with patrons but, after calling ahead, we secured a comfortable booth in the dining area.

Service was fast and helpful as our food and drinks arrived in reasonable time and the waitress informed me of the seasonal draughts from Sierra Nevada, Dogfish Head, and Samuel Adams. She also provided us with brief descriptions of the brewpub's beers.

If I recall correctly, the house selection includes the Piranha Pale Ale, P.M. Porter, Tatonka Stout, Nutty Brewnette, Brewhouse Blonde, Jeremiah Red, and Harvest Hefeweizen, among several others. There was no IPA on my visit, though surprisingly the bar carries a full range of high-end Belgian bottles. I paired my Buffalo Chicken Pizza with a Widmer Drifter Pale Ale and it proved to be a fantastic match.

My girlfriend and parents enjoyed their appetizers and entrees and had no trouble procuring a couple wines of their liking. Four two-course meals and eight drinks came to $150 with tip, which is pretty fair in my books.

Overall, we were quite satisfied with our experience here and I would probably visit BJ's on a regular basis if I lived in the area. In addition to the house beers, they also offer various rotating taps from other breweries, so there's a good chance that you'll always find something different on tap. Awesome spot.

BJs is a new establishment opened in Summer 2010. I have been here approximately 4 or 5 times. It is often busy, even on week nights but I have been able to get a seat fairly quickly. BJs own brews are good quality with a reasonable variety. They have a brown, blond, porter, red, Hefeweizen, stout, pale ale, light lager and a seasonal.They also have a nice selection of other beers on tap and in the bottle including some good craft brews. Food is good quality with a lot of variety. There should be something to please everyone. If you want better beer selection try MC Ks but the food is definitely better at BJs.
